Beruff on new poll: I've been an underdog my whole life



Republican U.S. Senate candidate Carlos Beruff said he is not worried about public polling that shows him getting crushed by Sen. Marco Rubio in their Aug. 30 primary.

During an interview on NewsRadio 610 WIOD earlier today, Beruff was asked by host Fernand R. Amandi about a Bay News 9 poll that shows Rubio with 63 percent of the vote compared to just 11 percent for Beruff. Another 13 percent in the poll were undecided.

“I’ve been an underdog my whole life,” Beruff responded.

Beruff said he is undaunted about being the only Republican left to take on on Rubio head to head in the primary.

“It’s sorta fun now to be the only guy left standing,” Beruff said.

As expected, Beruff spent much of his 18 minutes on the show blasting Rubio for “accomplishing nothing” during his more than 5 years in the U.S. Senate.
